The Time I Didn't Read A Review Before Watching The Movie
Are you serious?! I was SO not expecting that!
Going through Netflix the other night looking for a background distraction while cleaning, I came across this movie, Brotherly Love. I'm from Philly, so why not check it out?
Usually, I read about a movie before watching it. But, I read no synopsis, no reviews, and didn't care to know who was cast in this. Because the movie was just a distraction, I just hit the play and continued to clean.
And then it happened.
I stopped cleaning.
An unpredictable story line with an all-star cast kept me glued to the screen.
Great movies are simple in theory and challenging in execution. I imagine, to make a movie great, it requires two things: a good story and exceptional actors to tell it. This movie delivered on both.
----Who is this writer/director Jamal Hill? What else is he creating? How are there so many freakin' awesome actors in this ONE movie?!----
So, if you were wondering no, I didn't finish my cleaning the other night. (I know you were wondering yes, you were). Instead, I watched this movie, which had me thinking about it the next day, and the next, and the next.
We need more Mr. Hill. I'm just saying we need more movies that command attention and that leave an impression. Very. Well. Done.
